Strategies For Dealing Successfully With Uncertainty
Certainty, like security, is a relative concept as there are few, if any, certainties in life except death and taxes. Change is the only real certainty, so uncertainty necessarily involves resistance to change.
Learning how to engage the unknown with grace rather than with trepidation is a highly valuable exercise. One of the historic barriers to dancing well with uncertainty has been our attachment to the belief that there is security.
One can be secure – for the moment – as compared to someone else. However, life’s shifts can occur so quickly that there is no such thing as complete security.
